FORT WORTH | So7 | Cultural District | U/C

So7 is a mixed-use urban development across from Montgomery Plaza (the redeveloped Montgomery Ward store) on West 7th Street just outside downtown. The project is being built in five main phases - the first, a Residence Inn at the back of the property, has been finished for a while.

The second, begun around the same time as that portion of the development, was several blocks of Mediterranean style townhomes in the back of the property, centered around a roundabout intersection with fountain on a newly built road called Museum Way. The first phase of the townhomes are complete, and the second phase is underway now.

The third phase, wrapping up construction now, is a block of condos called the ArtHouse, further towards 7th Street a bit. A new road being built linking Museum Way and 7th Street runs through the ArtHouse complex. On one side is a block of midrise condos, and on the other (and fronting Museum Way) are two-story townhouse-style condos.

The fourth phase is a retirement condo tower development known as the Stayton, at the back of the property. It will be a complex of three ten-story glassy towers.

The fifth and final phase, which will be getting underway soon, is the So7 Shops and So7 RiverHouse Lofts. The large swath of property between the back where the Residence Inn/Stayton/ArtHouse/Townhomes are and 7th Street will be home to a mixed-use project featuring ground-floor retail and 180 lofts.
